Once Upon A Time - Layout

12 X 12
This week for Cheery Lynn Designs I decided on a story book theme layout. 

The layout consists of 'We are Memory Keepers' dimensional sticker series called 'Once Upon a Time', and Bazill cardstock.  

The Francesca Border was used to highlight beneath the photograph, and also frame the whole layout.  Very lacy and pretty!

I used the Sophia's Heart to decorate behind the photograph.  The Sophia's Heart is a stunning die, with very intricate detail and measures 5 1/4" X 5".  There are several very pretty elements within the die cut that could be cut out and used in a variety of ways. I did not want to cover the centre of the Sophia's Heart die cut piece, so I cut the centre piece out as it would not be seen anyhow.  This cut out element was used on the tab for the hidden journaling (on the right of photograph). 

The small cat and tree that sit upon the castle are from the Scare Me die set.  I have been wanting to incorporate the die set for some time - both die cuts are very fine and detailed.  I used the Victorian Picket Fence in my 'scene'.

In the above photograph, I used a piece cut from the centre of the Sophia's Heart die centre (which would not be seen under the photograph) to decorate the princess element.  The sweet little leaves curl around so beautifully, it was almost like it was made for this piece!

 The Enchanted Forest Stacker Frame (largest size) was used to frame around the photograph - this is a very fine die cut with beautiful detail.  Click on the photograph to see a larger image.
